The Arts Club Invests In dLive System

News Image
The Arts Club in London has invested in an Allen & Heath dLive digital mixing system as part of an audio upgrade programme at the live music venue.

Supplied by SSE Audio Group, the new set-up is based around a dLive S5000 surface – with both Dante and AES3 I/O audio networking cards installed – and DM48 MixRack. An Allen & Heath ME-1 personal mixer is also now employed for drum monitoring duties.

Richard Watts, SSE Audio Group Sales Manager, said: "The mainstays of The Arts Club tech team use dLive systems out on the road including Jonathan Lewis (Travis FOH) and Dave McDonald (Frank Ocean FOH), so it was an obvious choice for the venue. The team needed sufficient AES outputs for the LCRS mix and five-way monitor mix – the venue's L-Acoustics amplification has digital AES3 inputs – so the addition of the networking cards in the dLive makes for a very easy, flexible solution for them."

"The flexibility and fast workflow of the dLive system is incredible," added Charles Bidwell, Head Technician, The Arts Club. "It's like a hybrid of my favourite features from all my favourite desks; drag-and-drop fader population, great preamps and EQ, a brilliant surface and very versatile patching. When touring engineers – of which we get many at The Arts Club – use it for the first time it becomes familiar instantaneously and I've had nothing but good feedback from them. In fact, I like the dLive system so much I purchased my own dLive C1500 surface and CDM32 MixRack for FOH duties on Santan Dave's UK tour."
